Eons Greek Food for Life

Eons Greek Food for Life

 

633 2nd Ave

New York, NY 10016

Remember when fast casual food was considered unhealthy and full of poor quality ingredients? I feel like we've made extreme strides since the heydays of McDonalds and Chipotle. Don't get me wrong, I love McDonald's and Chipotle (to some, they are probably still in their "heyday"), but I'm not going to eat from those chains during the week. As a matter of fact, I rarely eat at McDonald's and Chipotle because I get nervous about the quality of ingredients and I don't want to regularly put questionable food into my body.

Anyway, I digress. McDonald's and Chipotle are not the point of this article. The point of my writing this is that I found a great fast casual restaurant that serves Greek meals with high quality ingredients, wild seafood (with the exception of their organic, farmed salmon), and anti-biotic, hormone-free meats. This place is called Eons, and it's truly magical. 

There are three locations to this fast casual Greek food restaurant: one in Murray Hill NYC, Paramus NJ (501 Rt. 17 South), and Fresh Meadows, New York (61-42 188th St.) If you work or live nearby one of them, I highly recommend you go. 

Why? As if high quality ingredients and fresh seafood and meat isn't enough....their menu is full of a diverse selection of bases and toppings that give you the opportunity to make yourself a new, delicious lunch bowl every time. Unless you go, like every day for a few months, but still...that's a lot of options. 

Here's what I went for during my lunch break:

BOWL #1

  • Base: salad
  • Protein: wild shrimp
  • Sides: farro salad (AKA Eons salad) and Greek salad
  • Spread: Tzatziki 
  • Dressing: olive oil & lemon

  • Base: white rice
  • Protein: domestic grass fed, antibiotic and hormone free lamb
  • Sides: potatoes and gigante beans 
  • Spread: garlic spread
  • Dressing: spicy tomato

  • Base: pita bowl 
  • Protein: hormone and antibiotic free chicken and grass-fed, hormone and antibiotic free steak

I've never seen fast casual like this before and will definitely be going back.
